And more help is on the way.
"There are problems and there are good problems, and that's a good problem," Roman told 49ers.com. "With Mario and Michael coming back into the fold, you're talking about two excellent receivers that have done it on the big stage. To throw that into the mix with Anquan and what Anquan has brought to this team on so many levels, now you're talking about a complete arsenal.”
That's a frightening thought for the 49ers remaining regular season opponents. Even without Crabtree and Manningham, the 49ers offense has scored early and often during the team's current five-game winning streak, averaging 34.8 points per game.
"You always want to start fast," Roman said. "What's the alternative to that? We've been able to do that, and that's a credit to our players and their preparation.
"The past five weeks, we've improved every week and that's the important thing."
Whether Kaepernick, Gore, Davis or Boldin are featured from week to week, Roman insisted that's part of a constantly evolving plan, based largely on what looks the team gets from its opponent.
"We go into a game every week with a plan," Roman said. "We try to adjust accordingly with how the game's going, what they're playing, what we're hitting, what's hot."
With Manningham and Crabtree soon to return, Roman will have even more weapons at his disposal.
"We're going to remain humble and hungry," Roman said. "As these men join us, it'll give us the ability to maybe open things up a little bit here or there. We're really excited."
